    I thought Resurrection was good.. Was like an action comedy, but really good. Wayland Yutani bought by Walmart was pretty funny.

      You’d have to come up with good ideas, but I think John Carpenter’s The Thing would be awesome in it xD.. I haven’t been this interested in MK since the 90’s. The dark humor they added is incredible. Like this cop character attacking with ‘police brutality’ moves, that’s just cleverly awesome.

    Mike is a good dude and I like him a lot – but in fighting games he’s a certified ‘button masher’

    You guys probably forgot while recording, but freddy kreuger was in Mortal Kombat (the 2011 game aka MK9).

    As a PC gamer that refuses to go and buy a console for a small list of games I am very disappoint. I got my Mortal Kombat shirt on that I bought for 7.50 while I was drunk at Walmart yesterday so you know I’m not messing around. I almost actually gave in and got an Xbone for Halo and Rare Replay while Gamestop had a good deal but I remembered the NX and came to my senses. I’d much rather use that money on an upgrade or possibly a new Nintendo console.

    Knife through the Eye! Or, tongue in this case. :p

    Mortal Kombat XL… Mortal Kombat 40!? Come on!

      Will the next be XXL?

        Or maybe XXX? 😀

    This game looks INCREDIBLE. If only they added Freddy Krueger and Ash from Evil Dead, I would say it’s the BEST GAME EVER. So many “versus” scenarios crossed off my list…

      Glad to see the video back to James and Mike. Three’s a crowd. 🙂

    Do a J&MM of Batman Arkham Asylum on PS3 and Night Trap on the SCD!

    Would be cool to get the Universal Monsters in on this…Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, Creature…

  • NashKnight

    This is fun but it’s hardly Mortal Kombat any more. Maybe they should just make a movie monster beat’em up, like a modern version of Nighstalkers.

    • NashKnight

      May 2, 2016 at 12:36 pm

      *Darkstalkers, sorry

    • bud

      May 2, 2016 at 6:15 pm

      They should put out a game version of Movie Maniacs, based on the Todd McFarlane toy line. That way you KNOW it’ll be awesome. 😉

      • bud

        May 2, 2016 at 6:29 pm

        Of course it’ll include Freddy, Jason, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Alien, Predator, Ash/Evil Ash, Chucky, Norman Bates, Candyman, Ghostface, Brundlefly, The Thing, The Crow, RoboCop, Terminator, fucking JAWS, King Kong, Godzilla, Snake Plissken, Wishmaster, Blair Witch, Pumpkinhead, with Edward Scissorhands as a secret unlockable character. 😀
        Holy shit, that would be the greatest game ever…

      • May 2, 2016 at 8:24 pm

        I fee like we’re missing one…

      • May 2, 2016 at 8:25 pm

        There’s some fan game made with a fighter creator in which they added pretty much all of those you named plus the Re-Animator lol

      • bud

        May 3, 2016 at 12:55 am

        Jigsaw, maybe?
        Was it Dr. Herbert West? I’d like to see that fan game, if you can find out the title…I’m sure it’d make a great addition to J&MM, too. 😉

      • bud

        May 3, 2016 at 1:01 am

        Oh, I know! We’re missing Cenobites. Pinhead, for sure. Maybe even the Cabal from Nightbreed? The hillbilly folk from Hills Have Eyes or Wrong Turn? Leprechaun or Puppet Master? Toxic fucking Avenger! Holy shit, I’m having a nerdgasm.

        I should have finished checking the rest of the comments before I posted. The game is Terrordrome ( and it also includes Maniac Cop and the Tall Man from Phantasm. That is amazing.

      • NashKnight

        May 3, 2016 at 2:07 pm

        I’ve just tried this and OMG is it awesome!! James, Mike, if you’re watching the comments, you HAVE to play this!!

      • May 4, 2016 at 4:52 am

        Terrordrome, that’s it! Yeah, Pinhead and friends! Omg, Toxic, can you imagine how awesome he would be xD

  • fanboyfilms

    The only problem with Alien is that the reason it was such a dangerous opponent is because of the acid blood. If you manage to hurt it, it hurts you even worse. Take that away and you’ve taken away most of what was unique about it. But if they left it in, it would win every fight, so I get it.

    Alien = classic movie
    Aliens = classic movie
    Alien 3 = slightly above average (a bit underrated IMO)
    Alien: Resurrection = shit

  • Weldin Dunn

    Dennis Hopper would be awesome!

    I liked mk9 better gameplay wise.
    X feels to repetive and the alien character doesnt look like the alien from the movie. The movie one got longer head and whats up with the claws? Never seen a “xenomorph” with bit claws in its hands. Make sense i that way that the alien is different depending on what it bursts out from but yeah, in my opinion they could have done moore moves with its tail and body instead of adding claws and give it a short head.

    • Rickard Castensson

      May 2, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      Big claws, not bit.

    Hey James and Mike. So glad it’s Monday. That was a great video guys. That game looked really, really fun. I agree with you James Michael Myres needs to be added. I know they HAD Freddy in the last game. He was dlc….He was included automatically if you bought the “KOMPLETE” addition. Don’t know why they didn’t RE-include him in this addition of the game….that’s weird. But regardless that game looked right up your guy’s alley. Wish I could have been there playing with you guys. That looked like a blast.

    Hey you know what I’d like to see. AND I KNOW THERE IS A AVGN FAN OUT THERE WITH THE KNOW HOW TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! I want to see an “AVGN” Tournament fighter game haha….You know where you can fight as James or Mike…I’d like to see the entire AVGN cast included….Including Bootsie, The Guy Behind The Couch, Shit Pickle, Bullshit Man, Board James, and if you can get the rights(haha) Pat the NES Punk, AlphaOmegaSin,….man….Wouldn’t that be awesome guys. I mean If the have a FULL HOUSE tournament fighter, there’s no reason we shouldn’t have AVGN cinaASSkicker HAHA…That would be a good title for it…I wonder what your guys special moves would be….Jame’s should be just snatching your punk ass up by the collar AND calling JUST SCREAMING CUSS words in your face so ANGRILLY that your head explodes…haha…That would be so epic…The guy behind the couch could smash you in the face with his guitar haha…Mike’s could be Like something to do with how he draws so good….not sure how to pull it off buy somehow he smashes pencils through your eyeballs….haha…I’m sure there’s no end to the possibilities…That would be great…C’MON FAN’S I don’t have the know how to pull it off but if anyone does YOU HAVE to make this happen.

    But anywho…Thanks For the great video James and Mike. Mondays are great when we get to hang out with you guys. I really look forward to Mondays a lot. Thanks James and Mike really. You guys are like Best friends to me whether you know it or not. And I never want the friendship to end. Thank you guys so much. If you guys only knew how much you made me laugh…I’m telling you, you guys are great. So glad you guys Made Cinamassacre. One of the few things in life that’s just great. I wouldn’t trade James and Mike for nobody. THANKS JAMES AND MIKE!!!! sincerely…

    Like Really sincerely,

      I wouldn’t know how to go about it, but CineASSkicker sounds awesome.

    Current generation games are a cash cow these days with all the DLC they want you to buy. It should be illegal to put out a game that’s not complete. I guess they finally got it rite with MK XL. New gen games are a ripoff.

    • Grandmasterp

      May 2, 2016 at 5:46 pm

      That’s probably why so many people are getting back into retro gaming and driving prices up on classic games. New generation games are ruining the hobby.

      • Grandmasterp

        May 2, 2016 at 5:49 pm

        New games won’t be worth shit after the servers stop supporting them. Eventually they will become coasters for you’re favorite tasty beverage.

      • Don Skiver

        May 2, 2016 at 7:17 pm

        Servers getting shut down making your games fucking coasters is MY biggest problem with current gen console games. I don’t buy multiplayer games at all because of this. I buy single player games, and if there’s a log in server that makes you always online to play single player, fuck it. Only exception being Blizzard (and only sometimes) since they still more or less still support a lot of their old games to some capacity.

        So many people are getting fed up with Day One DLC, always on connection for single player, incomplete, buggy, beta stage games being released that need half a dozen patches before it’s even remotely playable…no wonder I play retro games almost exclusively…and I’m not surprised other people are too driving up the price of old, used games to the point where they pretty much cost the same as they did 20 or 30 years ago.

      • May 4, 2016 at 4:26 pm

        @DON SKIVER I couldn’t have said it better! But not just blizzard, I usually find online servers on pc to run for quite a freaking long time. But mostly just the once popular games because they get sponsored/powered by a third party company.

  • Paulballsftw

    May 2, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the girl from Species and maybe Chucky in the game. The Species girl would sorta be like aliens maybe added moves that are sexual. lol

  • May 2, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    You guys should really try “TerroroDrome: Rise of the Boogeymen” for PC. It’s a free, fan-made fighting game for PC. All of the characters are classic horror movie icons from the 80s and 90s. It’s like the original Mortal Kombat only all of the characters are from slasher movies. I would love to see you guys play it on J&MM.

    • The Wicker Man

      May 2, 2016 at 11:54 pm

      I was surprised to see so much negativity online when these characters being included were announced. More characters (horror icons no less), more fatalities, and more fun is a bad thing I guess?! Bizarre.
      – One Alien vs one Predator, the Predator wins every time.
      – Jason would fuck them all up. 😉

      I agree with the other guys who’ve mentioned it, you should definitely give Terrordrome a go:

  • May 2, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    Terrordrome Rise of the Boogeymen would make a great episode, it’s not all that gory but it’s a indie fighting game with a whole roster of slasher/horror characters such as Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers, Leatherface, Pinhead, Chucky and even Ash among others.

  • Anthony33

    May 2, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    Has there been a Mortal Kombat game with both Freddy and Jason yet? They need to do that, I’d love to play that.

    I stopped buying and playing Mortal Kombat games with MK3 for Snes. Cyborg Ninjas shooting rockets/nets out of their chest seemed strange in a fighting game…. Plus when I bought Gran Turismo for Playstaion 1 no other game could get me to stop playing the Gran Turismo franchise until Grandtheft Auto 3 for PS2 came out.. The GTA franchise kept me going until Skyrim came out.. Now Skyrim won’t let me play any other game LOL

    • MrBrrumpkins

      May 4, 2016 at 12:39 am

      Dark Souls.

    • May 4, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      Well if you like Elder Scroll you would probably like Fallout or any other free-world adventures.

  • May 5, 2016 at 1:45 am

    There actually is Freddy Krueger character, but it’s in another MK game I think (Just Mortal Kombat)

  • xZOMBIEx

    Its funny watching casual players play a fighting game… It is kind of frustrating as well, but its funny as well… The DLC was very easy to understand and which to get… Also if Mike just downloaded the new characters then this really isn’t “XL”… There’s SOOOOOO many extra costumes/skins for the characters, new balance updates/patches, also new stage fatalities, just sooooo much more besides the new characters…

    Also Freddy was ALREADY in MK… He was in the last MK game, MK9 or the “Reboot” one that came out on 360 and PS3… There is also Injustice which is an awesome fighting game as well that didn’t get all the credit it deserved and still does…

    The one thing about the Fighting Game Community is it is filled with a bunch of immature kids that just want other fighting games to die if its not something they personally like… Instead of supporting all fighting games, they rather there only be the 1 or 2 that they only play… More like Fighting Game Crybabies… Also instead of actually learning and adapting to something, they go and cry to the developers for patches and nerfs or buffs for characters… Sure there are some things that need to be patched and adjusted, but most stuff can be adapted to and learn how to overcome, but this generation of kids are lazy and just want the quick easy fix….
